It took several years but I finally made it to a Social Distortion show. Many opportunities to see them did arise through the years, but for one reason or another I was not able to go, including having to miss because my daughter was sick. She is now close to the age I was on the night of that missed show. My how time flies. Band members have changed, and Social Distortion is no longer the young band I first fell in love with, but Mike Ness and the band sounded great. It was a lively show!
I had a flashback during the performance… I remembered playing their song, Winners and Losers (below) in the classroom while teaching the book, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to tenth graders – played on my CD player, before streaming video. I remember one of my students saying, “My mom loves that band.” Sounds about right. 😂 I incorporated music whenever possible in my reading and writing classroom; sometimes that included a brief history lesson on the musician or band. Kids today. 🙄 I am thrilled to have finally made it to a Social Distortion show. I will be equally delighted, in a more subdued manner, tonight, when I make my own music with my clarinet before unwinding my body and thoughts by a cozy fire. Sounds about right. 😌
Thank you for visiting and watching! Be well. 💗 Michele
